Meet with me for an unofficial transcript evaluation:

Contact me directly (or our office: 630-637-5800, admissions@noctrl.edu) to schedule an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts.  Bring copies of transcripts from all schools attended, and I'll give you a sense of how your credit transfers in to our general education, major/minor, and elective coursework requirements.  We have availability weekdays as well as some weeknights and Saturday mornings.  If you can visit during the day, we also highly encourage scheduling a campus tour and a faculty meeting to discuss your intended major and internship/job opportunities related to it – and meet with an athletic coach if you hope to participate in a sport.

Note:

Our next traditional start term possibility, Fall semester 2021, begins Wednesday, August 25. For full admission, financial aid and registration consideration, there is a target date of Friday, August 6 for Fall semester file completion. If you cannot complete your file by this date, call our office at 630-637-5800 to discuss your situation. We are also currently admitting students for our Spring semester 2022 (January 10 start date).

Learn about your Admission Counselor:

Favorite thing about North Central:  North Central’s tight knit and supportive community will help you find your very own path to success. The faculty, staff, alumni network and student body work together to make sure every student feels capable of achieving their goals. The combination of the community, ideal location, and network from over 150 years of service are just a few things that make NCC great!

Words I use to describe North Central students: Active, Passionate, Resourceful, Family, Community, Innovative, Self-motivated!

Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor/staff member at North Central? As a First Generation College Graduate, I was very lost throughout the entirety of my college search process. I did not know what to expect, what questions to ask, or where to begin the process. I became passionate about being a higher education resource and wanted to work at a school I could truly support. I love helping students find home at NCC but more importantly I love helping students find the best next step for them. We are all here to help! 

Favorite Naperville restaurant: Jackson Avenue Pub! They have the best burgers! 

Favorite season in Naperville: I love fall! I love the beautiful trees and cross country season.

Advice to students: Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If you feel it is silly, I promise you I thought it, asked it, or wish I had asked it. The college search process can be challenging no matter your story or background. We are here to make finding your next steps easier.
